The Mississippi Court of Appeals has rejected the post-conviction claim of a Meridian man convicted in a Kemper County murder in 1999.
David Martin Robert is serving life without parole for the murder of Lakel Cross, who was shot six times. It happened outside a Porterville night club.
Robert was convicted by a Kemper County jury in 2000, but he argued that his lawyer should have done a better job.
The court ruled Tuesday that his lawyer made some mistakes, but they did not affect the trial's outcome.
